Young people are faced with so many challenges today. For example, some are faced with bullying, peer pressure, trauma, homelessness, finding their identity or purpose and just recently a mass school shooting. The list goes on and on. Proverbs for Teens: How to Live, Love, Laugh, and Have it All On Purpose is a devotional prayer journal that enlightens students on how teens can live, love, laugh and have it all by having a "Proverbs 31 mindset." Some people think Proverbs 31 is about being a wife, however, anyone can have a Proverbs 31 mindset if they are willing to live a disciplined lifestyle. A disciplined lifestyle includes having a disciplined prayer life, being disciplined in our finances, in our diet, and day to day activities. A Proverbs 31 mindset is also about integrity, serving God and others.
To keep the book from being so boring, I open up talking about how life is like the movie called "The Matrix." Morpheus gives Neo a choice to take a red pill or a blue pill. The red pill symbolizes the truth, and the blue pill symbolizes returning to his regular normal life as he knows it. As a result, Neo decides to take the red pill. Neo soon finds out that he is the “Chosen One” to save Zion from being destroyed. He also finds out that he has enemies such as the machines, agents, and systems.In real life, we are faced with so many distractions, cultures, and systems that life can be overwhelming or even painful. The distractions and some of the systems of this Western culture we live in can even disempower us along the lines of social/economical/racial equity. This ebook/journal not only talks about how the Book of Proverbs being underutilized but also include some of my successes and failures and the life lessons I learned. In the journal, I include a space where kids can write what they think and how they feel about each subject matter in the chapter. At the end, is a personal and career development mini assessment. I wrote this journal for anyone who has a hurting/troubled teenager or who works with troubled youth. My hope is that God will get the glory and I also hope you find this journal enriching. Due to the file size, I had to put it in Google Drive. I look forward to hearing from you all soon and thanks again for entrusting me to share this book with your child, work, or school!
Hi Angie! I was going to wait until we actually see something but couldn’t wait to tell you that my mom called today crying because she was happy that VA determined her husband has 80% disability and that they should hear about $ opportunity by end of December maybe. Thank you for caring enough to have those conversations and sharing your knowledge. You have made a difference in their quality of life and now hopefully giving their family some financial relief and Ben her husband can proudly say I’m a veteran without crying in shame. They are honoring him now. A Huge thank you! - Daion C.
